      Talking Have you ever bought accessories for a gun before you bought the gun?

      Last year I bought a bunch of Tungten Matrix shotshells and a choke to use with an 870 before I even ordered my Wingmaster

      I'm seriously thinking about collecting some Wilson Combat 47D's and a holster for a 1911 that I might not even buy for another 6 months...I think I've got compulsive tendencies

      yes, yes I have... BUT, if you find a good deal on a piece of gear your going to buy anyway.... then why not? Your saving $$$ and time. If only makes sense...Right? Right? Sometimes I just can't help myself.... picking up a new gun is like waiting on xmas to get here, it brings out the kid in me :smt026

      Me and a buddy bought some hi-cap Para Ord. magazines in the late 90's at a good price (at that time ) so we could use them in our still non-existant hi-cap .45's. But someday..................

      Yep that's what I'm talking about.

      Collecting toys with anticipation and stumbling across good deals

      And heck, with the lead-time on some of the custom holsters I've seen, you almost need to order one a half year in advance.

      Well, I have a bunch of buckshot right now and no shotgun. I also recently eBayed some items for a gun I changed my mind about later on.

      Yep. Several holsters and a range bag full of mags I picked up cheap in case I ever buy that gun.

      Well, yes. I've bought several pairs of handsome wood grips for which I had not gun at the time. Also bought a hammer for a Ruger Blackhawk that I did not have. Left it on my desk a couple of weeks, and blamed if I didn't stumble across not one, but two, Rugers in need of re-working.

      Now if I leave a part out, my wife asks if a new gun is going to "materialize."

      Unhappy More Junk..

      Can't say I ever done that but I have bought a bunch of junk for guns I bought. Most of it I still got. Just last night I bought two 10 round clips for my 1911 and found out today they are junk. You think I would have learned my now, not to buy on inpulse.

      Have you ever bought accessories for a gun before you bought the gun?
      Yup!
      I've got dies and brass for the S&W 460 I don't have.

      I buy holsters all the time for future guns. It's my way of reasoning with myself. If I have the holster then I better get the gun or I wasted money on a holster.

      Years ago I ordered a holster from Ken L. Null for my Bersa Thunder 45. Ken borrowed a Bersa pistol to do the fitting but the pistol was a Bersa Thunder .380. The holster came and it was a piece of art. I kept it because I had an interest in the Bersa Thunder .380; I shopped and found a Bersa Thunder .380. This is one of the best mistakes I have been a party to. Why? The Bersa Thunder .380 is a great handgun. Regards, Richard
